I have always had an eye for creating beautiful things. I retired to the Cape after 20 years as an interior decorator in CT. My most rewarding projects were those that included designing and painting wall murals for clients. Now that I live on the Cape I have turned to painting on canvas!
Most of my paintings start en plain air and then are completed in my studio in Brewster. I begin with a quick sketch on the canvas to establish the composition. Then I lay in the dark areas before adding the light areas. When the values are right, it is time to adjust the color. The last touch is the "wink" or the detail that grabs you. Oil is my medium of choice.
I have studied with several Cape artists, to include William Davis, Rosalie Nadeau, Steve Kennedy, Susan Overstreet and Maryalice Eisenberg. I am a member of the Creative Art Center, Cape Cod Art Center and the Yarmouth Art Guild. I have volunteered at the Cape Cod Museum as a docent since moving here in 2009.
